Teresa Giudice: Detoxing From Drugs in Prison, Source Claims

by at .

Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse for Teresa Giudice, a new report emerged today that claims the imprisoned Housewife is struggling to kick her habit to prescription pills behind bars.

Teresa reported to prison last Monday, and more than a week into her sentence, sources say she's still experiencing withdrawal symptoms following several years of abusing Xanax, Valium, and other medications.

An insider says Teresa would pop "several pills a day" and used a variety of doctors in order to ensure a steady stream of prescriptions.

"Teresa would get things through her friend whose husband is a doctor and two other doctors," the source tells Radar Online. 

The insider also adds that Teresa had developed the curious habit of injecting human growth hormones, which could make the process of going cold turkey that much more difficult.

"It's going to be a major detox," the source says. "I warned her about that. It's going to be hell. It's a really brutal withdrawal. She will get diarrhea. She will have actual DTs [delirium tremens]."

So in the weeks since she started her sentence Teresa has been ditched by her friends; she started a doing manual labor for 12 cents an hour; and now she's going through a painful withdrawal process.

Sounds like women's prison isn't as entertaining as Orange is the New Black.
